Reviewed 29 August 2012 via mobile

I was here at the end of August. I've booked Brief Tarifa hotel but the receptionist told me that he received 2 reservations at the same time so he books for me Copacabana for the same price.
The staff in Copacabana doesn't speak English.
The room are nice, with a particular Arabian style. The problem is that the hotel is just on the side of a main road so during the night the cars noise is terrible.
Close to the hotel there is a very nice beach with a bar for happy hour.
Breakfast standard.

Feeling Robbed!!
This hotel is way overpriced for what u get, I was very disappointed.

I found bugs under the bed. the shower head wouldn't hang from the wall and had to hold it. My "ocean view" was no more than a view to the garden and had to actually get on my tip toes to look at the ocean which is all the way across the road. Needed to drive to get to the beach, no way I walked all that way.
I wouldn't pay not even half for what I got, i really don't understand how this hotel got good reviews.
I ended up moving to Chill Out 3 Mares hotel, I wish I would have gone there from the beginning. I wouldn't go back there again if it was half the price.
In the good side, staff was nice.

Room Tip: Don't stay here!. Try Chill out 3 mares next to it.

Nice hotel for who practices windsurf and kitesurf. Good rooms, many of them newly refurbished recently. The service is also good, friendly staff always try to please the client and to solve any problem that might occur. Hotel with fantastic view to the beach.

Reviewed 26 October 2008

When booking it on the internet, I already knew, it's a low season, so not many people would be staying in the hotel. The finding was funny - for the first 3 nights i was the only person at the hotel - that's middle of October. Later some local travelling folks came in.
As my aim was to learn the kite-surf, this hotel was recommended to me by Tarifa Max kite surfing school owner, Mathieu - as this school has a small lounge and office in the hotel as well, i've got 15% discount.

39eur/night with a discount worked fine for me - nice Moroccan style architecture, you can get into your rooms directly from the garden, TV and air conditioning worked fine, clean, modest and nice place to stay, not depending on you travel single, or with your friend. Did not see family rooms - cannot tell about them.

It's directly in front of Valdevaqueros, probably the most famous dune in Andalucia, and you can get to the beach in 5 minutes by foot, just crossing the road, approximately ~500 meters. Straight
from the hotel on windy day you can see hundreds of kites, kiting in the sea.

The traffic just outside the hotel is not bothering, though it's quite heavy. No shop inside, and no restaurant/food during low season, just the bar and traditional spanish breakfast (coffee, toasted bread, butter, marmelade, etc) - don't know about high season.

Hotel is being owned by a family, so be aware - in the inner background there's a house, where they do live. Staff is fine, although does not speak other languages than Spanish, except the administrator - Bartolome speaks french, a bit english. He is a former motorbike racer, but after accident left that industry - you can chat with him about that for hours :)

Be aware - there's no other transportation to the hotel than taxi or your own car. The distance is approx. 10km, taxi to Tarifa costs approx 12eur one side.

  • Liked — great escape from the city, beach, kite-surfing
  • Disliked — transportation to Tarifa and back, no meals on low season
